Reception[edit | edit source]
Allmusic claimed that My Kind of Broadway was filled with undistinguished performances, but "the results are pretty spectacular, but the majority of the album is merely pleasant." The album, filled with several classics and fine arrangements, but the album's settup of being a collection of several sessions made it uneven. The overall score Allmusic gave My Kind of Broadway was a three out of five stars.
My Kind of Broadway peaked at #30 on the Billboard 200 charts of 1966.
